Looking for volunteers to participate in the Ad Hoc Committee for Home Modifications. The Home Modification Ad Hoc committee will have two goals:
Volunteer Opportunity for Licensure Portability Ad Hoc Committee
Looking for members to participate in an ad hoc committee on licensure portability and the implications on our state. Persons who have multiple state licenses, practice telehealth or persons interested at looking at the impact of licensure portability on the practice of occupational therapy.
In 2015 AOTA established an ad hoc committee charged with the following:
I move that the Representative Assembly Leadership Committee establish an ad hoc group to investigate the merits of establishing professional license portability for the occupational therapy profession possibly through the creation of a licensure compact. The ad hoc committee will review the various models, consult with stakeholders and develop recommendations. The membership of the ad hoc will include representatives from OT and OTA and will consult with the Association’s State Affairs Group as the liaison to state regulatory boards on professional trends and issues. The ad hoc will complete its investigation and make a recommendation to the RA at the Fall 2015 meeting.
Three motions were brought to the RA in the Spring of 2016 the minutes of the meeting can be found at:
